President Trump Says He's Willing To Meet With Iran Next
President Trump has already had controversial meetings with two other world leaders: Russia's Vladimir Putin and North Korea's Kim Jong-un.
President Donald Trump said Monday he's willing to meet with Iranian leaders without setting any preconditions.
"So I believe in meeting. I would certainly meet with Iran if they wanted to meet. I don't know that they're ready yet. They're having a hard time right now," Trump said.
The U.S.-Iran relationship has been strained since Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal in May. The first set of sanctions are set to snap back in August, and Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani exchanged threats recently.
"If we could work something out that was meaningful, not the waste of paper that the other deal was, I would certainly be willing to meet," Trump said.
After separate summits with Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, a meeting with Rouhani would mark Trump's third high-profile-yet-controversial meeting.
